Billy Buzz Lothario, one bright midsummer day,/Just felt his blood (if bees have blood) boil in an am’rous way./Then off he flew to conquests new, and in the honeyed air,/With flit and dart, his waxy heart he offered ev’rywhere,/For love is love, and well he knew, to win, one first must woo, woo, woo,/To win one first must woooo./Buzz,/But Queenie shy, who saw him nigh was not a neophite,/Hence, drooped her eye and flitted spry within the bright sunlight./Lothario, with heart aglow, now cocked his wise old head/And then essayed to woo the maid with dainty wings out spread./On multiknees his love was sung,/And then alas! Was stung, stung, stung,/And then, alas! Was stung./Buzz, Buzz, Buzz.
